A very slippery slope
Reader comment on: Canada: Parliament Condemns Free Speech
Submitted by Michael Kurtzig, Nov 10, 2016 09:04
So we begin by banning Islamophobia or criticism of Islam; then we ban criticism of communist, socialists, Jews, Christians, African-Americans, ad nauseum. If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. If Islam cannot stand criticism, there is something wrong with it, as Islamic organizations throughout the Middle East have no problem about criticizing Israel, Jews, Christians and in fact, killing them. Take a look at their Media, endorsed by their governments and are often a product of propaganda. Don't come to our free, Western society and tell us how to think. Don't come here and ask to reduce our freedoms for which we daily fight. Debate and open discussion is a hallmark of a free society, at attribute clearly lacking in the Moslem world and certainly in Iran, Saudi Arabia and any of these ruthless regimes. This act is a step in the wrong direction; what is next on the agenda?
